Brief History of Cannabinoid and Endocannabinoid Pharmacology


SHOW MORE


British scientists have played a leading role in the long history of
cannabinoid and endocannabinoid research. Such research has progressed
from the first crucial evaluation of the medicinal properties of
Cannabis sativa in the Western world to pioneering studies of the
chemical constituents of this plant, the development of in vitro
biological assays to study cannabinoids, the identification of the
mechanism of action of cannabinoids, the discovery of endocannabinoids
and the assessment of their therapeutic implications. Stemming from the
many innovative ideas and achievements of these researchers, I provide a
personal view of where these studies have led us thus far and where
they are likely to take us in the future.
